Subject: Middle of a 9-day run
Three 3-day runs at MSG with a day off in between. By '91 the band was trying hard to meet demand for the NYC area! Not a run with the consistency of the just a year earlier (check the great 9/20/90 MSG), there are a couple good shows in there and a few highlights. This one's average with a couple good tracks for cherry-pickers. Complete-show buffs should save it for after other 91s (Boston 91, Pine Knob 91, etc.). This is another super hansokolow matrix and comes off just a bit more expansive than the board-source (except for some aud-distractions in Drums).

The 1st set has some sketchy parts but is saved by a career-highlight for Vince in possible 91's best Walkin Blues.

The 2nd set's Terrapin was inexplicably used for the So Many Roads Box Set. It follows one of 91's best Playin' and the tranny into Terrapin is cool. The (poorly-planned) box set should have at least included both. The set opener, Sugar Mag, is abruptly jerked by Jer into a pretty solid Foolish Heart in one of the weirdest 90s trannies. It sounds like they planned to do the transition while at the break but that the rest of the band weren't expecting it so soon?! This is also one of those fireworks-mind-bending Drums that kept anyone from bathroom breaks and caused major hallucinations - feel the power of the spiral jelly universal distortion cruise ship.

With Box of Rain you get two Phils in one show and though the 1st (Tom Thumb) is a train wreck, that's not half bad.

1st set:  C-
2nd set: C
Overall : 2 Stars
(If this isn't what a 2-star show sounds like then I don't know a date that does.)

Don't Miss:
Walkin' Blues
1st Playin'
Drums

Subject: Phil
I remember that (heads yelling for Phil). You can actually hear some of it at the end of Big Railroad Blues. Great show. Really, a great run through MSG and then up at Boston Garden after that. My brother was at some of the Boston shows, and he still raves about 9/20 with the Help > Slip > Fire
